The front of Restoran King Crab, on one side is covered with a huge poster of a giant crab with neon lights. It's exterior yellow color painted walls is sure eye catching. If you are driving on the LDP highway, from Sunway heading towards Kepong , you will not missed it. The interior is painted in a shade of yellowish apple green. The kitchen is huge and can be view from the outside through a glass panel. There are some aquariums for storing the live fishes and crustaceans. The dining area is air conditioned and spanned two floors. We decided to forgo home cooked food today and had dinner at this restaurant. It is located in Taman Mewah Jaya, opposite the Kelana Jaya LRT station in Petaling Jaya. As it's name implies they specializes in fresh seafood especially crab and live fishes, done in all types of style. Funnily, for tonight the 12 of us, we did not order any crab dishes. The food portions served was huge and generous. Parking is ample after 7pm. Please make a reservation if it's on a weekend.

Lai pak"mini swiss chard" in superior soup-golden needle mushroom, wolf berries-soup was flavorful while the vegetable was leafy and crunchy

Braised angled aloofahs with bean curd -egg gravy was smooth and tasty - the best that i have ever eaten in a long time-best!

Roast chicken 1/2 - some prawn cracker with sliced cucumber-was tender and hot from the oven

Egg omelette with prawns and onions-was nicely done with lots of prawns

Braised duck 1/2 with kai lan (Chinese broccoli)-was tasty and meaty with a distinct flavor

Steamed white whisker river catfish-flesh was fine in texture and superbly fresh and sweet, but the skin was rubbery

Buttered squid's ring - was too sweet and not crunchy, the battered egg was fluffy, buttery and lots of curry leaves flavor.
